Spencer Davis and Bond Suss Racing have enjoyed success together this season and it’s set to continue for the remainder of big race season.
Davis will pilot the BSR No. 55 Toyota in the Pro All-Star Series North-South Shootout this weekend and the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 on November 18th. BSR and Davis will also cap off the year with a trip to the 50th Annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway the first weekend in December.
Most recently, Davis led the most laps and finished second to Donnie Wilson in the All American 400 on October 2.
“Running the last couple of big races with Bond at the end of the year is definitely a boost of morale due to his marquee title as a crew chief and car owner,” Davis said in a press release. “When you go to the race track with him you know you’re going to be one of the ones to beat and going to the MegaMeltdown and the Snowball Derby with him on the box calling the shots will be awesome. It makes the Tom Dawson trophy slide that much closer our way.”
Suss is considered one of the elite crew chiefs in Super Late Model racing and believes Davis’ unique combination of experience and talent will win them some races this fall.
“We are really excited to have Spencer back in the car a few more times this year,” Suss said. “We have had some successful runs with him this season and I know we can battle for wins in these big races to close out the year.”
The home stretch kicks off with a trip to Concord Speedway for the North-South Shootout.
A year ago BSR earned its first win at this event with Dalton Sargeant behind the wheel. They hope to defend that title this year with Davis piloting the No. 55 Camry.
“This was a big race for us last year,” Suss said. “To get my first win as a car owner was definitely special and Dalton drove a great race. We have all the tools to get it done again this year and I know that Spencer will be ready to go.”
No pressure, right Spencer?
“Bond and the team won the race last year with Dalton, so they have a winning set up there,” Davis said. “We have a lot of momentum from finishing second at the All-American 400 and now we’re looking to improve one spot. I’m really looking forward to the North-South Shootout and the short track tricky triangle, hopefully we get Bond another win.”
Davis has a handful of starts at Concord Speedway under his belt, including a third place finish in 2015. Dubbed one of the tougher tracks due to its triangular shape, the Georgia driver thinks his experience at the Concord track can help him get it done this weekend.
“I definitely feel like past experience helps,” Davis said. “There’s a bunch of people who raced there weekly and people who raced there consistently since before I’ve been alive, so the little bit I have there in Super Late Models and Tour Type Mods helps. When we unload Thursday for open practice I’m not having to learn the track, I can go right into making the car better and making improvements and they aren’t having to wait on me as a driver to get around.
“It’s definitely one of the more challenging tracks I’ve raced at as a driver.”
